May be totally related but I have seen those symptoms when the body of a
POST request gets read earlier in the request than usual, and then looks
empty when it is supposed to be read (so the Content-Length is zero
instead of whatever it should be).  In my case I was calling
$c->req->param inside prepare_path, and it seemed like it was sucking in
the whole POST body, leaving it empty for when it needed to be accessed
